Later on, this dance drama will be staged in several cities in Guangdong, including Foshan, Shenzhen and Zhuhai. On July 1 and 2, it will be presented in the Guangzhou Art Season. In the following period, a national tour will also be staged.

The dance drama mainly shares a story that with the approaching of the international dragon boat competition, Li Jianjian, a female coach is appointed to form a dragon boat team to call for excellent youths nationwide, especially from the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to compete for China, and finally, they succeed in winning honor for the country.

In the newly-revised version, it has made some upgrades in choreography, background music, lighting, costumes as well as characters. Moreover, the dancers have a deeper understanding on the roles they play through nearly three months of rehearsals, so they will present the characters more vividly. Importantly, the audiences can easily make sense of the plots through dancers' interpretations without too many explanations in words.
